For a great number of people, purchasing a utilized car is generally a superior decision to purchasing a brand new car. This is because the price of the car will be substantially reduced even though the car has only been on the market for a few years.

Buying a used car - the pros

When you purchase a utilized vehicle, a considerable lot of the costs of owning the vehicle are decreased. Benefits of purchasing utilized include:

  • Lower price tag
  • Lower deterioration
  • Lower enrolment and permit fees (which are generally attached to the estimation of the vehicle)
  • Potential for lower protection premiums

The primary holder of a vehicle has ingested the greatest bit of the vehicle's working life and you may encounter severe problems with the vehicle later on.

Purchasing a utilized car can have negatives:

  • Reduced or no producers' guarantee
  • Potential for a higher interest rate on your car loan or lease
  • Potential for decreased dependability
  • Paying for upkeep costs, for example, tires, battery, brakes, and oil changes
  • New vehicles have a tendency to have better service records

This allows you to select a vehicle loan and repayment term that suits your income, the type of vehicle you're after and your lifestyle.

Do you qualify for a loan at Barclays?

In order to qualify for a car loan with Barclays, you will have to undergo a credit check that will determine your ability to afford and manage the car loan. We require that you be over the age of 18 but do not require you to put up security to secure the car loan. This means that you do not need to own a home to qualify for a car loan but you must be able to demonstrate that you have a steady income. You will have to prove that you are able to afford the loan and this can be done by providing us with at least 3 months worth of payslips.
